(Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images)ESPN college football analyst David Pollack believes one top 10 team has “no shot” at making the College Football Playoff.Notre Dame, the No. 10 team in the latest Coaches’ Poll and AP Poll, is coming off a road loss at No. 3 Georgia.The Fighting Irish aren’t in a conference, of course, and can at best finish the season 11-1.Pollack doesn’t think it’ll be enough. “They’re not (still in the race),” Pollack said, per 247Sports. “They’re out of the playoffs. They have no shot to make the playoffs. Last year, we were sitting up on set and we were debating the final four teams and Notre Dame was in the conversation of teams that might not be in. And they were undefeated. Remember, no conference championship game when everybody gets to play.”Notre Dame has a couple of big-time games left, including a bout against Virginia this weekend. The Fighting Irish also play Michigan and USC, among others.Pollack doesn’t think the schedule is hard enough to warrant getting in with the loss at Georgia.“Michigan does not look good on the schedule now,” Pollack said. “Virginia’s probably their toughest task the rest of the way. No. I don’t think that Notre Dame will be in the College Football Playoff discussion. They might be a team that’s on the outside looking in with the top 10, but they’re out of the playoffs.”Saying Notre Dame has “no shot” might be a bit harsh, as there are potential scenarios where an 11-1 Notre Dame team would get consideration, but not being in a conference really hurts the chances now.
Dickies 1922 Collection Offers Some of the Best Menswear Made in America We can hardly believe its time for all our favorite brands to show us what they got for AW 2014- has 2013 been the quickest year yet? Nevertheless, here’s one of the standout collections from Japanese denim brand Edwin.The best way to ‘feel’ the collection is to watch the awesome accompanying film created by Jonny Kight and Benjamin Robinson. The film was shot in the Les Vosges Mountains in North East France where, at times, the temperature dropped to a ball-shrinking -15ºC. A testament to guy time and good, sturdy, no-nonsense clothes, the film features Edwin’s FURTHER crew larking about on 70s trial bikes.For those out of the know, the FURTHER crew are a motley of acquaintances known by the brand that have been gathered and sent on several road trips by now. Essentially, as described by Benjamin Robinson, Edwin’s Art Director and the director of the FURTHER films, the film is ‘a roadtrip where everyone was wearing Edwin’. This has become a tried and tested formula for the brand to establish the hardwearing, grease-stained potential of their clothing- and one that we really love.The pieces within the collection retain that lovable sturdy, pulled-on from off the bedroom floor appeal. As the crew wades through the knee-deep snow it’s encouraging to see the new steely-washed indigo denim being dragged through the icy wet without any wincing. Throughout the collection, the color palette is casual and understated; shades of cognac, leather black and a spectrum of grey-tinged blues feel welcome and utterly wearable. Photographic mountain prints on t-shirts and flannel and Fair Isle jacquard on shirting are classical and intrinsically winter.All in all, Edwin have got us in the mood for a little winter bromance, 70s trial bikes and all.
